Agricultural Heritage of Georgia

Georgia has always been a leader in agricultural production. We have a markedly varied climate, which allows for successful production of a wide range of fruits, nuts and vegetables. We have good transportation infrastructure, which permits shipping our produce easily to the rest of the country and the world.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture printed two booklets which explain the history of Georgia’s agricultural products. Arty Schronce, Director of Public Affairs, scanned these booklets for me and I’ve posted them on my website.  Email me if this information has been useful to you.
